  • Dr. Andrew Weil on Breathing Exercises for Health

Watch this video interview and discussion with Dr. Andrew Weil on the importance & healing of and how to do breathing exercises for health.

We can find roots of mindful breathing in other traditions and religions, such as in Buddhism. Mindfulness of breathing was noted in the ancient Buddhist text, Ānāpānasati Sutta, which also included notes on insight meditation and other meditative practices. Thich Nhat Hanh described the breath as “the bridge which connects life to consciousness.” It is an accurate description of this invisible life force as the breath involves movement from the external, invisible realm of the world around us to the internal, physical reality that we experience (and vice versa).
